In August 2021, the Mayor's Office of Climate and Sustainability and the City's Environmental Justice Interagency Working Group released a draft scope for the Environmental Justice For All Report. The draft scope was developed based on what the City heard during the first public engagement process in Spring 2021. In partnership with the Environmental Justice Advisory Board, we held a public comment period from August - September to solicit feedback on the draft document.
During the comment period, the Mayor's Office of Climate and Sustainability, in partnership with the Environmental Justice Advisory Board, held events to review the scope and seek feedback from New Yorkers. We held one citywide remote town hall on Zoom, participated in in-person events in all five boroughs, attended community board meetings, and promoted the comment period digitally.
The comment period is now closed, and the scope has been finalized based on feedback received during that time.
